The ninth full-length studio album by German Folk Metal band.
If anybody still was hoping for a reversion to their full Medieval Metal past, it is doubtful that is ever going to happen again, but that being said, "Quid Pro Quo" might be a far cry from the In Extremo of old, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have any life left in them.
It becomes clear that the Germans still are at their best when they go all-out Folk Metal with this album and prove that this unique mix of Folk and Metal still has all the relevance it had 18 years ago.
It without a doubt is very entertaining and still retains the In Extremo spirit of their medieval past, but at the same time the reduced heaviness and especially the reduced Folk influences definitely harm several of the songs. In the end, though, it’s still pure In Extremo and a worthy continuation of their evolution throughout the years.
